Hey Primate Posse™ and all my virtual cartooning pals! I’ve been a little out of it lately, which might continue for a while. I was in Toronto last week and I’m pretty busy this week, so I want to say a big thank you to all the cartoonists who have given me a promo or a re-tweet! I’m a little slow but I owe you guys! You’re the best! I also need to update the “comics I like section” because I’ve recently discovered some really good ones! Stay tooned, as usual!
As promised, here is an example of the kind of thing I do that I call “art.” This is an original song by my alter ego Stan Dickie with an animated ‘moving painting’ to accompany it. It’s called Little Dickie! Enjoy!
And here’s the Spanish version that was made for a group exhibition in Mexico City. You weren’t expecting that, were you? I’m pretty proud of my – mean – Stan’s accent on that!
Hey Primate Posse™! As you all know, I decided to decrease the number of ‘toons I’m uploading to this site in order to concentrate on my other projects, mostly involving the world of contemporary art. So I thought I’d share some of the things I’ve been doing on that front. Some of you are familiar with my performance art alter-ego Stan Dickie, who has even appeared in this strip. Anyway, I’ve been working on the recordings of the songs that I wrote for him. All of the Stan songs were recorded by me on my mac with a Blue Yeti microphone in Garage Band. Basically, I played guitar and sometimes Harmonica to a drum loop and recorded the vocals. The songs never had any bass or drum fills. But that is slowly changing! I found a way to make my guitar sound pretty ‘bassy’ and I’ve also been recording drum fills with a midi controller. I’m pretty happy with the results, so please have a listen!
A Promise to the Lord:

It’s interesting that much of the work I’ve been doing has actually been music related (I gave up music more than 10 years ago – or so I thought, but that’s a story for another time), and very unlike ‘conventional’ contemporary art (if there is such a thing). There is another music project that I will unveil soon that is unrelated to Stan. And I’ll also post the rest of the Stan songs as they are finally completed! See you next week!
